In just 72 hours hockey loving Americans had their hearts ripped out and shown to them. Devastation, frustration, anger and bewilderment are emotions supporters of Team USA are experiencing right now.
And it SUCKS…
On Thursday, the United States women’s team had a 2-0 lead late in the third to see it evaporate in the blink of an eye. A portly post cost them Gold and Canada won the game in OT.
Could it get worse? Oh yeah it could.
Team USA men’s team was scoring goals by the barrels and were riding high heading into the medal semi-final round. They had a great shot to beat Team Canada then reality set in. Canada dominated them defensively and derailed their offensive machine.
I was watching the game helpless, screaming at my TV. Praying and hoping Team USA could hear me thousands of miles away. I was angry as the Red, White & Blue couldn’t muster anything against the Canadian defensive vice. They were beaten and their effort was mediocre at best.
Where was the desperation? The Fight?
